Subject: Bibles to Africa
Date: July 17, 2004 5:33 AM
I have just returned from a 3 week evangelistic trip to Africa where I visited a
village on the Kenya/Tanzania border called Kuria. As with all the villages we
stayed at there was no running water or electricity or access to drinking water.
They live in mud huts and most do not even use money, but rather barter. Those
that do have money probably live on a few dollars a month.
When we visited Kuria the pastor was telling me that his church members do not
have Bibles and all 350 of them have to share 1 Bible!! They can read but they
cannot afford $5 for a Bible. I lived with these people and I know they are
genuine and I saw how hungry they were for more light. It struck me that here is
a church that don't even have the most basic tool in the world
required to follow their Saviour - a Bible. So I have sent this email to 79 of
you in the hope that you might be able to donate money towards buying them
If everyone of us were to donate $22 US (approx ?3GBP) then we could afford to
buy everyone a Bible ($5 Bible x 350 people = $1750 /80 donations = $21.88
each). If only half of us donate then at least they could have 1 Bible between
two. I have a trusted contact in Kenya who can order and
deliver the Bibles.
If anyone is willing to donate more than that, there are other villlages that
also need Bibles, and Kuria and other villages also need shelter. Presently when
they meet for church they meet out in the open, so when it rains they sit or
stand on the ground in the pouring rain. So if anyone has any ideas as to how to
raise money for such projects please let me know.
I wont take up any more of your time, so if you are able to donate (and I
understand that not everyone can) please send a British cheque payable to Aaron
29, Pembroke Road,
Muswell Hill, London N10 2HX.
If you are in America you could send a US cheque to my Mum, and she will give me
the money in 2 months when she is in Europe. Her details are,
3406 Leopard Place, Colorado. 80537.
Thank you for your time,
Love in His name,
As you know I just returned from Kisii, Kenya where an SDA
brother, Samuel Asiago, has set up 29 Sabbath keeping churches since Jonathan's
visit about 5 years ago. They believe the SoP etc. but really need some Bible
study. They are definitely THE most responsive groups I have EVER talked to.
Prove something from the Bible and answer all their questions and they WILL
change. While I was there, Samuel also invited about 8 or 9 Sunday ministers
from the area. The subject was Sabbath and by the end of the week 6 or 7 of them
returned to their churches to inform them of the issue and switch to Saturday.
Each church has approx. 300 members.
They are very hungry to learn about prophecy and especially
the Mark of the Beast. So if you have any tracts or Bible studies you can send
them, please let us know. Preferably though, if you, or anyone you know would be
willing to travel there for a couple of weeks at a time, perhaps once or twice a
year, that would be great. Or even if you could only make one trip then that too
would be greatly appreciated. You would need to pay for your flight and have
about ?00 for transport to the churches. That's probably all you would need.
I wont go into great detail here, but if anyone is interested
please let me know and I'll fill you in on the details.
Thanks and God bless,
webmaster: Aaron Sen request donations from 79 persons only. However, if viewers
want to help Africa, Please do not hesitate to participate. I believe Aaron can
use the extra money on much other assistance to Africa. For your convenience, I
can accept credit card donations for Aaron. You can send your credit card
firstname.lastname@example.org . Please specify Africa Gospel and the currency you
want to use. If you could collect used Bibles, hymn, musical instruments, food,
cloths, building materials, or other things to assist
Africa, please do so. But I afraid the cost of shipping to Africa is high, and
they do not have money to pay the tax as well. You
can contact Aaron for more information at
